Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground.
Then the angel of God, who had been traveling in front of Israel’s army, withdrew and went behind them. The tornado also moved from in front and stood behind them, coming between the armies of Egypt and Israel. Throughout the night the tornado brought darkness to the one side and light to the other side; so neither went near the other all night long.
Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the Lord drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.
—Exodus 14 (OT)
As your day draws to a close, spend a few moments in silence and stillness. What, in the passage stood out to you? Ponder it in meditation.
“You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.”
—Psalm 16:11 (OT)
